5 Things I Lurve About My Husband

in Marriage

I don’t write about my husband that much. When I first started my blog, I thought for sure I’d write about him, our relationship and the strange reality we live in all the time. I was wrong. Part of that has been because this turned into a space more for me to explore myself than examine our relationship. But part of that has also been that–honestly–I’m kind of private about relationships. I don’t necessarily want my marriage, the most important relationship in my life, up for public consumption.

But my husband is an amazing guy, never let that be doubted. And in honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d do a list of 5 things I lurve about him (hat tip to Clara for the title). I’m lucky to be married to him, and these are just a few of the reasons why:

  1. He brings laughter to my life. We laugh a lot in my house. A LOT. I credit N.C. for the majority of that laughter. He’s funny, and whip smart, and has a bit of a snarky streak. We laugh at each other. We laugh at the world. We laugh. And laugh. And laugh.
  2. He thinks I’m worth pushing. N.C. knows that sometimes I need cuddles and coddling. But he also knows that sometimes I need to be pushed. He believes I’m amazing, and strong, and able to do anything I put my mind to–and he tells me that, even when I’m feeling less than capable. He’s not afraid to push me, and that is awesome.
  3. He’s an amazing father. I always knew he’d be great with kids, long before he was ready to get married (much less have kids!). But seeing him with Jackson is amazing. I watched him fall in love with our son in the hospital, and I’ve watched that love and relationship grow every day since. He’s there in the dirty and grungy parts of parenthood, just as much as he’s there in the fun and feisty parts.
  4. He has an overactive brain, and isn’t afraid to use it. He’s smart. He’s interested in the world. He likes to learn new things. He isn’t afraid to be wrong, or not know the answer. He can discuss and dissect the world, and is always open to learning more. In another life, he would have been a scientist, or an engineer, or a mathematician.
  5. His creativity inspires our lives. Being an artist, there’s the obvious bit of his creativity hanging all over our walls (and our floors and counters sometimes too!). But it’s more than that– N.C. is creative in everything he does. He’s creative in the kitchen. He’s a creative problem solver. He’s got creative friends. He believes everyone has as much creativity as him–and encourages it in them. He encourages it in me, in our friends, in strangers. And let me tell you, life is a little more colorful when it’s filled with creativity.

So there you have it. 5 (of the MANY) things I love about my husband. Happy Valentine’s Day honey. I’m so lucky to have spent the last 11 of them with you.

As always, you can find more lists every Monday over at ABDPBT!
